In our preclinical facility, we have two small animal facilities for mice and rats (called PET Animal Facility and DNC Animal Facility).
Both facilities are classified for housing transgenic as well as wildtype rodents. Mice and rats can be housed for up to one month in both facilities. Along with the animal housing facilities we have laboratories for performing rodent surgery and scanning in our micro PET-MRI scanner.
Pigs, and other large animals, used in studies, are housed at a large animal farm, 10 km outside of Aarhus.
There is a daily transport of large animals between the farm and the hospital.
Surgical facilities are also available at the animal farm.
